How to enter rams to the Sheep Ireland Elite €uroStar Multi-Breed Ram Sale 2021

Entries & Sale order 

Breeders are permitted to enter four rams from each breed in their flock. This year, flocks with over 50 ewes lambed of the same breed are allowed to enter a fifth ram for that breed. If Covid-19 restrictions remain at a high level, the number of entries could be revised down ahead of the sale, but this will be made clear to breeders in advance of the sale. The sale will be run on a breed-by-breed basis, and as in 2020 there will be one ballot per breed. There will be two rings in operation on the day, with the order that breeds enter the ring and the ring they go through being determined once all the entries have been received.
